Every 3 or 4 months, solar city keeps sending me a bill of around 3000$ which is incorrect. it should only be around 70$ because they bill me for my solar panels output that I use. It's physically impossible for it to be any higher because of the ...
Cease and desist letters need to threaten plausible litigatation with actual grounds to sue. Here, you can't seriously threaten a lawsuit. It makes no sense to sue a company for bad billing practices.
This is a customer service issue. Treat it like one. Going to the state's AG and seeking adverse publicity is also an overreaction. Solar City, and you, their customer, are doing something GREAT to help the planet, so the last thing you want to do is give them bad publicity. Trust me, I feel the same way about my Tesla roadster pretty much every time I get it serviced, but I forgive Tesla their corporate flaws because this company is on the right side of history here, as is Solar City.
You understandably want this repeated frustration to end. So put your complaints, which it sounds like you have good records of, in writing. Name names. List dates. Document the erroneous bills. Keep copies of everything. Send it to the corporate office, with a copy to their legal department. Ask for a written response, and get the name/title and contact inormation of someone with authority to fix this once and for all. Get something you can wave around in the future of this happens again. And remember, besides the great savings you're getting why you're doing business with Solar City.See question

You have asked this before, and now you're asking for "a friend." Minors cannot make contracts, but sometimes some contracts can be enforced against them, like maybe this one.

This is a customer service issue, not a legal dispute that needs a lawsuit. Communnicate with them in person by going to a branch and speaking to the manager, who you can hold accountable if necessary. Make sure to get their full name and title and contact information, so they know you'll contact their boss if they don't competently fix this.See question

Scammed online out of $200, I am 18. I made a deal with a person named Alexander Miller who I believe is in his 20s or early teens over text message to pay $200 for a pair of shoes. He sent me a box in the mail which was empty. Then I contacted hi...
Very doubtful you'll get your money back or the shoes. Also very douybtful you could get the police interested in this relatively small and civil, not criminal, matter.
If you had bought this on eBay, they have a dispute resolution process, but this text message "seller" sounds like a thief, and as you acknowledge, you were scammed. Call it an expensive lesson in how not to do business. Buy from reputable sellers, who at least have bad feedback to lose, if they don't perform their end of the bargain.See question
Is this ever a valid objection based on information equally available to propounding party or otherwise?
Yes, it's a valid objection, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're not obligated to respond. The other side wants to verify that yiou won't claim not sending/received certain communications, and their own production of the same documents wouldn't prove that.
If on the other hand, they HAVE produced all such communications and asked you to admit the genuineness of those documents and you have admitted it, their requests for your own production would be duplicative and harassive.See question
I was sell hats and Jersey customs said all the items were counterfeit if I abandon what will happen
Of course you should abandon the goods. That's not you main concern.
Your main concern is getting CRIMINALLY prosecuted for willful trademark infringement. If you're charge with a crime, hire crimininal defense counsel with experience in IP immediately.
Your next concern is if you get sued CIVILLY by the trademark owner, which again, could be for willful infringement., If you're sued, hire a civil IP litigator immediately.
If you're lucky, all you'll lose is your counterfeit merchandise which you probably bought cheaply from China anyway.See question
I am writing a children's book with illustrations of famous moments in that team's history and am wondering if I need permission to draw a picture of an athlete for the book, or the team to draw their logo or images from famous moments.
No one owns historical facts, and in some states like CA, there's an exception to the laws prohibiting violation of publicity rights for reports of news and sports events. See CA Civil Code section 3344 (d). But that exception is for new and sports broadcasts, not for children's books.
There's also the 1st Amendment, which courts have sued to protect fictional works such as the film "The Hurt Locker" from publicity rights claims.
But you want to write illustrate a commercial non-fiction children's book about a team's history, using it's trademark, its athletes, and its events.
Your risk is getting sued for trademark infringement and for unfairly competing with this team's own intellectual property because your customers may erroneously confuse the source of your book and may think it's some "official," team-sponsored work.
It's possible that you can produce such a work and minimize your exposure by prominently disclaiming any affiliation with the team/league/athletes. This will require consultation with your own IP lawyer, which you would need anyway since you should register your own work for a copyright and make sure the book is vetted for trademark/copyright/publicity/privacy/contract issues.See question
